About Us

The Clinical Neuroscience Institute (CNSI) represents an exceptional commitment to advancing research and treatment relating to neurologic conditions. All of Southwestern Ohio benefits from this investment in developing advanced new treatments.

The institute leverages scientific research at the Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine and Premier Health’s extensive clinical resources to develop new, more effective treatments for neurologic conditions.

Clinical research is particularly helpful for the community, because it brings new advances to patients quickly as these new treatments are being developed.

A Highly Effective Collaboration

Close collaboration between scientists and doctors who regularly see patients speeds development of new treatments. With our clinical experience, we can quickly transform new discoveries in neurologic science into breakthroughs in patient care.

By working together, scientists and doctors can steer leading-edge research in directions that are likely to lead to new treatments. Also, doctors bring to research important insights that can be gained by working closely with patients.

Research Directions

CNSI applies its considerable resources to studying neurologic conditions that affect millions of U.S. families. These conditions include:

  • Hypertension and stroke
  • Nervous-system control of breathing
  • Neurodegeneration
  • Schizophrenia
  • Spinal cord control of limb movement
  • Stress and adaptive behavior

Research at CNSI features innovative work that is rapidly translated into treatments that can be used to improve the health and quality of life for those in our community and around the world.

Benefits to the Community

Apart from the medical benefits of our rapid development of new neurologic treatments, the Dayton region also benefits in other ways from the CNSI partnership.

As a major research institution, CNSI has a significant economic impact in Southwestern Ohio. The institute will have an estimated impact of tens of millions of dollars over the next five years. Development of this national research institute here in Dayton is a significant benefit to our community.
